Guest Post: Rumer Haven on Film Inspiration for What the Clocks Know @RumerHaven

Thanks so much for hosting me, Sarah!As an avid reader, I've had many literary inspirations for my writing. But as a film buff, movies make their way into my stories, too! Here are just a few that influenced What the Clocks Know:1. Enchantment (1948) - Starring David Niven, this black-and-white classic did indeed enchant me with its graceful cinematography and delicate storytelling.

Rumer Haven’s What the Clocks Know is OUT! @RumerHaven

NEW RELEASE!Released March 18, 2016Paranormal Women's FictionCrooked Cat Publishing~ * ~Summary: Twenty-six-year-old Margot sets out on a journey of self-discovery – she dumps her New York boyfriend, quits her Chicago job, and crashes at her friend’s flat in London. Rather than find herself, though, she only feels more lost. An unsettling energy affects her from the moment she enters the old Victorian residence, and she spirals into depression. Frightened and questioning her perceptions, she gradually suspects her dark emotions belong to Charlotte instead. Who is Charlotte? The name on a local gravestone could relate to Margot’s dreams and the grey woman weeping at the window. Finding a ghost isn't what she had in mind when she went ‘soul searching’, but somehow Margot's future may depend on Charlotte's past. Woven between 21st century and Victorian London, What the Clocks Know is a haunting story of love and identity. ** Add it! ** http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/29368003-what-the-clocks-know** Read it! ** Amazon US - http://amzn.to/21DZoCwAmazon...
